Bookmakers have made Mary Creagh the favourite in the betting market to be the next Labour candidate for Islington North following Jeremy Corbyn's ban from running for Labour.
Creagh is evens to be the next Labour candidate for Islington North and has previously been a candidate in Islington until she moved to Wakefield to become the Labour MP there.
The Daily Mail reported back in January that Creagh would be a good candidate for the party after she lost her seat back in the 2019 elections 'thanks to Corbyn'.
According to the latest betting odds from Smarkets there's a 50% chance that Creagh becomes the Labour candidate for Islington North but Labour's Islington North site still shows Corbyn as their MP.
It seems likely that Corbyn himself will run as an independent MP in the next election and in doing so he will surely be the favourite to be voted in yet again in Islington North.

Betting is also available for the Next Labour Leader with bookies continuing to offer odds on who will eventually replace Sir Keir Starmer at the head of the party.
Starmer will likely stay in the role until at least the next General Election but a poor showing in that would surely signal the end of his reign as the leader of the Labour Party.
Current Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer Rachel Reeves is the 4/1 favourite to be the next Labour Leader with BetVictor putting her clear ahead of Andy Burnham in the odds.

Andy Burnham has long been the favourite to be the next Labour Leader and the majority of UK betting sites keep him as the favourite to replace Starmer next.
He has drifted in the betting with some bookmakers though as they look to change the order of the market around in recent days with Reeves going into favourite.
Burnham has been in the news in recent days after being ordered to pay nearly £2,000 in fines, charges and costs and given six penalty points for speeding.
One report in the Manchester Evening News states that Burnham was going 78mph in a 40mph zone and such law breaking may well cost him in the race for Labour Leader.
